2 cards is not an overkill for 1440p. Might not be nessecary most of the time, but it does help. İf you want the best performance out there in 1440p a kepler sli setup would not hurt. İ will sli my 670 on my bday hopefully smile.gif

Your thoughts would help greatly smile.gif

Will you be watercooling these cards is what you need to ask yourself..... Some non reference cards are hard to find full blocks for...

Here's a few options.... Any of the three will do all you need in SLI

Thanks for all the replies. I must disagree with a couple though. I don't think I'd need a processor upgrade to game at 1440p (especially BF3 which uses all 6 cores and I can OC to 3.6 easy). I'd definitely want another 6950, even though my one now runs everything I have now great at 1200p (unlocked to 6970 and I don't use AA ever). I was mainly curious as to just from a monitor standpoint because I like my 1200p, but i've never seen gaming on a 1440p in person though.

BTW to the guy considering the 660ti's from all the reviews I've seen if there's one thing it's good at it's BF3.

Yeah but unfortunately all BF3 GPU tests are performed in SP campaigns, multiplayer is a totally different beast and performance issues with multi GPU's are widespread until EA/Dice release a patch or nvidia release better drivers for it.

CPU is irrelevant like you said @ those resolutions as it's all GPU bound.

Perhaps it's just my monitor then. I can feel and see much more input lag.

Which is a total bunch of lies.

You can't compare the performance of Single Player to playing on Caspian Border or Strike at Karkand with 64 players on Conquest Large, it's a huge difference in performance. thumb.gif
